CEA Research Forum 2018 interview with Evan Reis, US Resiliency Council.
This was with the California Earthquake Authority and provides a concise summary of the US Resiliency Council’s goals and objectives.
The California Earthquake Authority (CEA) History
On January 17, 1994, a magnitude 6.7 earthquake known as the Northridge earthquake rocked California’s San Fernando Valley—twenty miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles—on a fault, no one even knew existed.
The earthquake caused an estimated $20 billion in residential damages alone—and only half of that was covered by insurance.
After the dust settled, the Northridge earthquake shook the foundation of the residential insurance industry, which had greatly underestimated the potentially huge costs associated with damage from even a moderate earthquake.
CEA Research Forum 2018
CEA’s annual Research Forum invites subject matter experts across risk and resiliency disciplines to come together for two days and discuss groundbreaking ways to improve the safety and security of our communities.
The 2018 CEA Research Forum “Innovation in Earthquake Risk Assessment: How Technology is Changing the Industry” was held February 22-23, 2018 at the Sacramento Convention Center.

US Resiliency Council History
The US Resiliency Council — USRC — is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and is a leading organization for implementing and disseminating rating systems that describe the performance of buildings during earthquakes and other natural hazard events.
Fifty-nine organizations provided initial funding, guidance, technical and organizational expertise to support the development of USRC and its Rating System. They include prominent engineering firms, some of the nation’s leading engineering professional organizations, industry representatives and individuals. We thank our Founding Members for their continuing involvement and endorsement of the USRC Rating System.
